I am troubleshooting some issue and suspect may be due toi UDP packets dropped between client and server

I have captured at the same time on both client and server

In the trace, can I use a unuque identifier for a UDP packet that I can see being sent from server and then see same packet arrive on the client side

By its very nature there are no unique identifiers in UDP streams, it's a connectionless, non-acknowledged transport. However, you can leverage the data dissectors feature of generating an MD5 hash of the payload. By comparing the hashes in both captures you may be able to find what you seek.
